Together with Birgit Haugen, the author of the popular book Mjølkevegen med avstikkere (The Old Milk Route with detours) we offer guided cycling tours of some of her favourite routes. Join Birgit on a cycling adventure over a long weekend where you can discover some of her favourite hidden gems.

Author and cycling enthusiast Birgit Haugen has selected a few of her favourite cycling routes that diverge from the main Mjølkevegen route. These curated cycling tours of the Norwegian landscape, carefully selected and guided by Birgit herself, will give you a unique experience exploring the region around Mjølkevegen with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide.

Birgit will guide you on tours of some of the best cycling roads around Mjølkevegen – her personal favourites. The tour will provide the basis for a scenic, adventure-filled weekend with plenty of experiences in one of Norway’s most beautiful regions. One of the wonderful things about Mjølkevegen is that there are so many adventures and experiences just waiting to be enjoyed along the trails and close to Kamben Mountain Lodge. Aside from Birgit’s carefully selected bike tours in the area, there are also many other beautiful hikes and cycling trails you can enjoy, as well as swimming or fishing in the area’s lakes and creeks.

Day 1

Transfer from Oslo Bus Terminal

This bicycle tour starts with a bus transfer from Oslo, where you will be riding with the modern and comfortable Valdresekspressen. It is a scenic 4-hour journey that will take you from the hustle and bustle of the capital to countryside roads surrounded by blue lakes and vast fields. The coach has adjustable seats, free WiFi, outlets with USB charging ports and toilet facilities on board.

This 4-day tour uses Kamben Mountain Lodge on Golsfjellet mountain as the base from which you will explore the local area from the comfort of your bike seat. At the cozy Kamben Mountain Lodge, you will enjoy an idyllic, rustic overnight experience in the style of a traditional Norwegian farmhouse - but with recently renovated, beautifully decorated rooms.

Day 3

Langestølen - Revulen - Panoramavegen

Today, Birgit will guide you on a route along Revulen and Panoramavegen. This cycling trip is listed as route 9 in her book, and is moderately difficult. Revulen is off the beaten track, meaning you will experience an exciting trail that is one of Birgit’s favourite hidden gems. The route also takes you through the beautiful Panoramavegen with its gorgeous panoramic views that inspired the name of the road.
